Fulfillment Challenges Highlight Supply Chain Agility Woes
New customer buying behaviors are forcing businesses to come to grips with the need for agile demand and replenishment processes that can adapt to exceptions or disruptions during the execution cycle. Yet inflexible supply chain management systems are creating roadblocks for many companies. JDA recently commissioned Gatepoint Research to survey executives from a wide range of industries, including food and beverage manufacturers, industrial, life sciences, grocery, and consumer retail, to assess distribution-centric supply chain management planning strategies. The results indicate broad gaps between business strategies and existing capabilities. This whitepaper addresses the survey findings and discusses how organizations can become more agile and flexible to meet the needs of a rapidly changing, multi-channel environment.

Manufacturers and retailers alike are grappling with supply chain management systems that lack visibility into real-world execution constraints. Consumer and business buying patterns are changing rapidly, as the Web and mobile technology make it easier to order across different channels. If retailers and manufacturers are unable to meet expectations across all channels, they risk disappointing buyers.

Manufacturers are under the gun to deliver the goods when and where needed, even if those needs change between production and delivery. “The art of getting physical products to the final customer now involves coordinating a multitier network of upstream and downstream partners—distributed globally—across which innovation needs to be ever quicker and more relevant, all in the face of increasing risk of disruption,” according to the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge in England.

“Suppliers need to be able to adapt replenishment processes in a more agile manner in order to accommodate rapid changes in demand as customers shift between channels. In-place management systems simply can’t handle the growing challenge of variability when it comes to fulfillment,”
says Fabrizio Brasca, vice president of solution strategy for JDA, a leader in end-to-end retail and supply chain planning and execution solutions.
